Sweetly Sour Pudding


This morning I woke up with a deep desire to indulge in a steaming hot sweet and sour pudding; fortunately I knew just what to bake – my mother’s beloved vinegar pudding. This hot pudding is literally fuming with vinegar, but that’s alright because the sugar and vanilla will complement it wonderfully.

Ingredients: For the pudding/cake

  • 2 Large eggs
  • A large lump of butter at room temperature
  • 1 Cup of white sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Pinch of salt
  • 2 Teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 and a half cups milk
  • 1 and a half cups white cake flour

For the sour sauce

  • 1 Lump melted butter
  • 1 Cup of water
  • 1 Cup of white vinegar
  • 1 and a half cups of white sugar

Prep Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius (356 degrees Fahrenheit)
  • Grease a heat resistant dish with any good spray and cook/bake product – you want a good sized dish of about 25 cm circumference and 10 cm depth, because the pudding does rise.
  • Add the water, sugar, vinegar and melted butter together to make your sour sauce and beat it well then pour it into your greased dish.
  • Beat the eggs, butter, sugar, vanilla and salt together till a pale creamy texture is formed.
  • Add the baking powder, milk and flour to the creamy mixture and beat it all together to form a decadently voluptuous batter.
  • Spoon the batter into the greased dish with the sour sauce, do not mix it, just add it.
  • Place the dish into the oven and let it bake for a good 40 minutes.

Please note: The center of the pudding will sag upon removal from the oven.

Hope you enjoy your pudding.

Take care.
